virginia is one of them. take a listen. >> i think what we need to be doing right now is holding the line on taxes, not letting anybody's taxes go up at least until we see the end of this terrible recession. i think it's a pretty simple idea. there are a number of other folks here, also, on the democratic side that agree with me on this. and you know, i led a letter along with some other members, 31 signatures on it among the democrats here that said it's not the time to raise anybody's taxes. >> so what about that? >> yeah, no, i was talking to jerry connolly on monday who was at a town hall with president obama, president obama was there, talking about not wanting to extend these for, for the upper income folks, and jerry connolly was there, saying, hey, he'd want to extend these for everyone, at least temporarily because he thinks that the recovery is too fragile. so it's not just about republicans, it's almost kind of like you've got a revolt among democrats who are also saying that maybe this recovery is too fragile for a tax hike at this point. they've got a problem on their hands.
